First Look: Three Prototypes From Marin Cycles
Why did Marin choose to use a single pivot rear end for the Mount Vision, but Quad Link (dual link variant) for the Attack Trail??? On their older models they used Quad Link on both these two models. Personally I liked the aesthetics of the old Quad Link 2 over the new Quad Link 3, it also had the advantage of an elevated chainstay so there was no chainstay chain slap.

Analysis: Enduro World Series Rules and Regulations
"Only one frame, one front and rear suspension unit (fork/rear shock) and one pair of wheels can be used by a competitor during a race. " Riders should be allowed to strap an extra fork or wheelset to their backpack as along as they are willing to carry the extra weight :-P

One pair of brand NEW Tioga Yellow Kirin 26" x 2.3" tires. Asking $35.00 for each tire or $60 for the pair. Otherwise, feel free to make an offer. These tires were intended for Downhill/Freeride and thus weigh close to 900g each!! MTBR Reviews: http://www.mtbr.com/cat/tires-and-wheels/tire/tioga/yellow-kirin/prd_364258_151crx.aspx

To the Point: Heat Treating Aluminum Frames
Article from Bicycling Magazine indicating carbon can be repaired. "A properly restored frame will also be just as strong as its unbroken original. One composite engineer at a major bike brand who spoke on the condition of anonymity said he has performed pedal and head-tube fatigue tests on repaired carbon frames and found they passed his company's internal standards. It's even possible a cracked frame can come back stronger if it was damaged in an underengineered area or failed due to a manufacturing defect." http://www.bicycling.com/maintenance/repair-maintenance/resurrection-calfees-carbon-frame-repair
